Professor Alan Boudreau Presents on Mediation Advocacy to Prairie State Legal Services

On October 7, 2013, Visiting Clinical Assistant Professor Alan Boudreau spoke on "Advocating for Clients in Mediation" at Prairie State Legal Services. Professor Boudreau's in-house professional development program provided an overview of mediation as it is practiced in Illinois and then focused on mediation advocacy skills to help clients achieve their mediation goals. As foreclosure mediation is expanding around Illinois, the Foreclosure Mediation Clinic at the College of Law and Prairie State Legal Services have been working together to provide additional legal resources to struggling homeowners.
